Question on renting out tillable ground. How do most of you go about renting out the tillable acres on your ground to a farmer? Do you have a legal contract written up by a lawyer, good ol'boys handshake etc? I have talked with a couple of people and have heard both. Just wondering what is recommended along with do's and don'ts. I have not contacted any tenants yet, I'm just trying to get a feel for the best course of action. Of course I want to get along with everyone involved etc. I have the contact info for the farmer that farmed it most recently and he wants to continue. I just want to be prepared for what to do/expect before contacting him. Would like to hear from some others that have experience with this.
